How to install NetHunter on Any Android Phone (Nexus 6p) 2021

Here are the instructions from beginning to end to install Custom Recovery, Root and Kali NetHunter on a Nexus 6p. These instructions should work for any Android that is completely unlocked.

Don’t hate me but I did this on Windows, however it is just as easily possible on Kali.
